Kabir Singh has put Shahid Kapoor on the spot and how! The Sandeep Reddy Vanga directorial has managed to hit a chord with the youth and it's raging as we speak. So much so that, it has already raked in big moolah and is poised to grow more. Not just box office success but critics and cine-goers are applauding Shahid for his career-best performance of an alcoholic, cocaine-snorting surgeon. The character took some real digging into the dark psyche and while Shahid seemingly makes it look like cake-walk, it wasn't. However, it was the unabashed abandon that helped the actor build a bridge with the material he was offered.
But hey, it wasn't light on the mind. In fact, Shahid had to consciously switch it off after pack-up because he had to go home to his family, wife Mira and kids Misha and Zain. The actor, in a recent conversation even revealed how he managed to do that. Apart from taking showers to get rid of the smell of cigarette, the actor also had to leave Kabir and the rage on the sets and on being quizzed about his process, he said, "In my car, thanks to Mumbai traffic it gave me an hour and half. " Not just that, he also said that he knew he had to do it because he is a parent. "Once you become a parent, honestly, I think it’s a God-given switch. “ It makes you a better person. If you’re not a parent you’re missing out on something, " the actor said. Watch the video here.
Talking about the film, it garnered rave reviews from all around the corners. Our Editor-in-chief Tushar P Joshi gave the film 4 stars and wrote, "Kabir Singh is an ace up Shahid Kapoor’s sleeve and a treat for his fans. Watch it if you want some intense romance laced up with knock-out performances." He also praised Shahid's performance and said, "Shahid delivers one of his careers finest performances. His rage and anger isn’t just on the surface but it’s visceral and a part of the air he breathes. To show that complexity isn’t easy, so Shahid digs deep and becomes the madness that is Kabir. He is deep and intense yet light and breezy when needed. There is a natural flair and charm that he puts to use full throttle. Kiara’s last scene with him is a revelation."
